Hi my name is Jacki and I am 16 years old. I have had a pretty rough time living in Ohio with my dad and step-mom, things are not going well and I am always depressed. My parents admitted me into a facility called Lincoln Place back in July. They told me to get out of their house and the posted me as a run-away. While I was in Lincoln Place I had to go through all of this counseling and Drug and Alcohol rehab when I do not even have an addiction. I have only tasted alcohol once and tried marijuana once in my life also. I just recently was able to come home at the begining of October. Ever since I have been out things have been horrible for me. I do my chores, make good grades, and do everything I am asked of. Nothing is good enough for them though. They told me I can get a car, but I have to buy it and I am not allowed to get a job. I want to know what I can do to get emancipated in the state of Ohio. My dad owns his own buisness and is always on the phone and on his computer, and my step-mom is a police officer. When you come into my house my dad is in his office with the door shut and my step-mom is in her office with the door shut. When I come home after school I do what they tell me to do and then sit in my room until I get ready for bed. Everyday I sit in my room and cry because i feel unwanted! Well I want to feel like I'm needed, so I want to support myself and live on my own and prove to everyone including myself who thought that I could never do anything that I can. I am ready to take care of myself and live to my own expectations. How can I be emancipated?? Please someone help me!
